Barry pledges to change team

Boss frus­trated by player’s at­ti­tude

Rutherglen Reformer - - Drivetime - Will Hen­shaw

Clyde boss Barry Fer­gu­son says the Jan­uary trans­fer win­dow “can’t come quick enough” after his side’s 1- 0 de­feat to Al­bion Rovers at Broad­wood.

The for­mer Rangers cap­tain de­scribed his side as a “huffy puffy” team say­ing that the squad needed a “bit of metal”.

His com­ments came when speak­ing to the Clyde of­fi­cial web­site after Satur­day’s game.

Speak­ing of the 1-0 de­feat, which was Clyde’s fifth on the trot, the for­mer Scot­land cap­tain said: “There was noth­ing in it. A mis­take from us and they score.

“I think they had one at­tempt on goal and we had one at­tempt.

“We’re a bit tooth­less up front. We’ve got no killer in­stinct, but that will change, Jan­uary 1 is not far away.”

The 36-year-old had pre­vi­ously told the Re­former he was hope­ful of bring­ing in sev­eral play­ers in Jan­uary.

He added: “It’ll be more than a few. I’ve got a few done and I’m close to get­ting another three or four done.

“I think I’ve got just over two weeks and it can’t come quick enough to be hon­est.

“We’re just a huffy puffy ream. I need a bit of metal. I need peo­ple who are cute up­stairs and who know the game.

“We have agreed for two play­ers to come in at the start of Jan­uary, but un­for­tu­nately I can’t name them just now be­cause they are still con­tracted to other clubs.

“The deals are sorted for them to join us on Jan­uary 1 though.

“I am also work­ing to get another three or four play­ers signed and hope­fully we can also have them in by Jan­uary 1st, as I want to get our business done as early as pos­si­ble.”

Off the pitch, Fer­gu­son also com­pleted his UEFA A Li­cence last week.

He added: “The badges don’t just hap­pen overnight, it takes a lot of work but I am glad that I have done it. I think it was worth­while and it has taught me a few things.”

Clyde will hope to break their bad run of re­sults when they take on East Fife at Broad­wood this Satur­day with a 3pm kick-off.
